How to Prepare for Your Wax Appointment
- Hair must be a quarter of an inch This takes about 3 weeks for legs, arms, back, or chest. to be long enough to correctly adhere to the wax. Trust me, your hair does NOT grow faster than everyone else's.
- Resist the urge to shave between sessions. Your waxing will start to last longer once we have all the hairs on the same growth cycle.
- Gently exfoliate the skin night before your wax and about every other day after waxing. I recommend exfoliating the night before to remove dead skin build up, aiding in easier and more thorough removal. I suggest gently dry brushing OR using a gentle exfoliating scrub or cream, or an acne cleanser. If you are experiencing ingrown hairs or breakout, increase how often you are exfoliating and also remember too hydrate, with our dry mountain climate this is vital to keeping the skin healthy and bump free.
- Chill. Come to your appointment as relaxed as you can. Like a lot of things in life, the anticipation is often worse than the actual event. Don’t listen to friends who tell you their waxing horror stories. They don’t come to me! Youtube videos and movie scenes with screaming ninnies will only get your knickers in a deeper twist. This is your experience and I want it to be a good one!!
- Take a deep breath. Once on the table, take a few deep breaths and to try to relax. Don’t worry—it really doesn’t hurt that much. And trust me, I want you to come back, so I won’t do anything to traumatize you!
- Know that it gets easier. I get that first timers don’t know what to expect. My advice is to acknowledge that the first one will be the most uncomfortable, especially if you’ve been shaving prior to it. However, it doesn’t have to be the worst thing you’ve ever done. Most of the time, people leave my room pleasantly relieved that the wax wasn’t nearly as bad as they expected. Every wax after the first one gets easier, especially when your hair starts growing in finer and the follicle starts to soften!
- Medicate if you must. if you’re concerned about the potential for pain, take a couple of Advil or Tylenol 20 minutes before your appointment. Some clients feel this takes the edge off.
- Remember, it will be over before you know it. Being fuzz-free is so worth a couple minutes of discomfort!
